Lo and Behold are Mike Miller and Karen Linder. They've been in business since 1997 buying and selling cultural oddities, folk art, not-folk art and antiques. Mike is originally from Bethal, Pennsylvania where he reluctantly absorbed the antique trade by working part time in his father's auctioneering business. Karen hails from Middletown, Ohio and defiantly quit her sensible job in the advertising world to join Mike in the pursuit of mysterious and wonderful objects. They travel extensively in search of particularly thrilling items that fall through the cracks of everyday life.
MIKE'S 5 COOL THINGS:
1} Robert Loughlin - NYC artist
2} Adopting a pet from your local greyhound rescue association
3} Tacos al Pastor
4} Neil Young - After the Gold Rush
5} Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel
KAREN'S 5 COOL THINGS:
1} Auction box lots filled with treasures.
2} Vintage clothing purchased at thrift shops. Recycle and reuse and help save the earth by buying one less thing manufactured in China.
3} Yul Brynner in "The Magnificent Seven". Now that's a manly man. And a gunslinger with honor.
4} Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Support local organic farming by purchasing a share in a farm and receive weekly shipments of fresh organic fruits & vegetables.
5} Antiques at the Garage in New York City. In Chelsea to be exact. A fantastic market in existence for over 25 years featuring a group of dealers selling antiques, art and vintage clothing every Saturday and Sunday. More info at: hellskitchenfleamarket.com
